Charles Erskine Scott Wood was a Renaissance Oregonian; author, soldier, attorney, and involved in the politics of his time. This is a discussion of his life and work, brought to you by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission. http://ochcom.org
The elder gods are dead --
But still there shall be gods.
Dogwood delicately uplifts a sacrament;
Purple and yellow violets embroider a shrine.
Even now a wren is praying,
Unseen and at a hidden altar.
